Today, OCZ is letting fly with the second coming of a VCA 2.0 product, this time squarely targeting the enterprise, datacenter and high-end workstation markets. Where OCZ's RevoDrive line targets more consumer-like price points, their Z-Drive line is about no holds barred performance for the enterprise. The Z-Drive R4 with VCA 2.0, the same SuperScale Storage Accelerator, and now an octet of SandForce SF-2200 controllers, has landed on our testbeds for a few cycles of the benchmark gauntlet. And oh yeah, it's packing a full 1.6TB (that's Terabytes) of usable capacity on board. As the old saying goes, let the games begin! OCZ Z-Drive R4 Performance Preview
Wow, there is not much else to say but Wow!
"I'll keep dreaming about this"
Yep this looks like a crazy card, you have to pay to play! I wonder if they will start to package these cards with single slot custom coolers/fans in the future.
Now you're just mashing it!
Why must you guys tease us? Should really consider giving one of these away for a contest ;) lol
@Inspector - We would LOVE to give away a stack of these things. Not sure we could get OCZ to sponsor them though. :)

Preview? You mean we can't even buy this awesome SSD card now???
I wonder how much it's going to cost when it released; I have my bets down on "a really, really lot."
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
$5 - $7 per GB - Final MSRP still TBD: 1.6TB = 1 638.4GB
@$5 = $8,192
@$6 = $9,830
@$7 = $11,469
These with IBM's multi level cpus that they are working on would be instant or near instant computing?
Data centers are going to love this thing.
Insane specs for sure.
yep. my jaw has been hanging round me feet since this post.
CPU: e6400 @ 3.2 (H-50'd)MB: MSI p6nRAM: 4G adataGPU: GTS-450 and 8800GTS for PhysxHDD: WD 500G BlackPSU: 620W Corsair Mod.Case: 900-2 with 7 cathodes and AP-15sOS: W7 and Ubuntu
when this hits the 200$ mark then we talk, silicon and transistors are overpriced
Maybe when I win the lottery...
If I was rich, I'd buy 2 and put them in RAID 0. Or maybe RAID 10 to be safe. :)
Hot diggity - PCI express SSD ftw! I can't wait for this technology to become mainstream and CHEAP!
SPAM-posters beware! ®
